Strawberry Roll using Genoise

This was fun and easy to make.

9 eggs separated
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
2 tbs vanilla
pinch of salt

Whip the yolks until pale and think, slowly pour the sugar in a stream and cream for a minute or two until looks creamy and thick. Add vanilla then slowly add the flour and beat until well incorporated.

In a separate bowl beat the egg whites and a pinch of salt until stiff. Then fold them into the flour mixture.

Pour and smooth evenly onto a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 350 about 20 minutes until light golden and well set.

Take out and cool completely for about 30 minutes. After it's done cooling make your filling in a well cleaned and cold whisk and bowl. I put mine in the freezer for about 10 minutes before whipping up my filling.

1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 ts  vanilla or lemon extract
2 tbs of sugar
fresh strawberries

Beat the cream with sugar and extract. Clean and cut up the strawberries.
After your cake is completely cooled invert cake onto a towel and peel away the paper, pick which side you would like to show and spread your filling, load on your fruit and roll up.

I dusted this particular cake with powdered sugar first then cocoa powder.
